Leave a lasting legacy in our community through the Columbia Valley Community Foundation

Designating a gift for the Columbia Valley Community Foundation (CVCF) is a way to fulfill your charitable legacy in the community.

Our concept is simple: your gift is invested and the investment income is used to support local charitable programs and projects going to your wishes.

The principal is never touched, ensuring your legacy lives on forever. In this way, the CVCF acts as a bridge between you and local charities to help create and maintain a strong, vibrant community for generations to come.
